He will be attending Yeshivas Birkas HaTorah in the Old City of Jerusalem with the new northern hemisphere school year in a bit over a week. Nissim spoke beautifully in his graduation speech about gratitude, and this was followed by heartwarming farewell talks from his friends, and siblings. We wish you Nissim much hatzlacha in your journey ahead! Mazal tov to CTTH Board member and teacher Rabbi Dani Brett and longtime teacher Morah Nechama Brett on this milestone!

As an international WASC accredited school, CTTH strives to make sure our students are globally competent. This means making sure they have the skills, values, and behaviors that prepare young people to thrive in a more diverse, interconnected world.
As an internationally accredited school, a key focus is for students to have global competence,
At CTTH each student’s academic trajectory is tailor-made for them, and no two students are the same! Each child is unique in their passions and talents. Shouldn't their education at school reflect that?!
Did you know: CTTH students are leading a spiritual revolution in Cape Town? Every Shul benefits from our energized and committed youth! From making minyanim to leining and leading children services, CTTH youth are at the forefront of the Yiddishkeit in our community.
CTTH has partnered with Resolute Robotics to teach coding and robotics in a hands on method, where students build and program their own racecar in Grade 9! High school coding and IT subject choices are available throughout grade 10-12 as well.
CTTH is the only Jewish High School in South Africa to receive full international accreditation. The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), a world-renowned accrediting association based in California, USA, granted this prestigious status for the maximum six-year period after a week-long visit and thorough inspection of the school by three senior WASC commissioners. CTTH applied, and was granted this accreditation together with the Sinai Academy primary school, under the umbrella name of “Jewish International Schools of Cape Town.”
Every Friday, our Girls have a designated "Chessed Period" to work on various projects to benefit the underprivileged, the community, or give back at school. This transforms our students from takers to givers!
Did you know? CTTH has already graduated 7 classes of matriculants who are in Yeshivot, Seminaries, the IDF, and top Universities around the world! Our graduates have enrolled in:

Did you know: CTTH now has both its own Boys and Girls Futsal teams with weekly practices at the Badgers Academy grounds!
CTTH boys love Daf Yomi! 12 boys completed the entire Masechet Megillah. Matric Sasha K. has already completed 14 (!!) tractates, Matric Sam G. finished 8, and Grade 8 Menny F. has now finished 4!

Term 2 Recap from the Desk of Mrs. Conibear
As we wrap up our second term of the year we are filled with such gratitude for what has been crammed into an eventful few months. While this term has been incredibly short, our teachers and students have worked tirelessly to fit in what was needed and more.
We began this term by launching our wellness challenge as a part of our ESLR focused on healthy living. Teachers and students took on the challenge to prioritize exercise, healthy eating and sleep. Well done to everyone who managed to achieve their goals.
As is always the case with the second term, we honoured Yom Hashoah, and Yom Hazikaron and celebrated Yom Haatzmaut together. We are so grateful for the incredible guest speakers who joined us for these special days to share their experiences and learning. In addition, we also had the highlight of Lag BaOmer as we shared in the community concert with all the Torah schools in the City.
Academically, we have continued to excel and most notably, this term we celebrated some of our school’s most commendable SAT results to date. We want to celebrate each of our Matrics who made us so proud.
Outside of the classroom, our school has been active and engaged. We had two spirited Shabbatons, the election of two leadership committees and a special Youth Day soccer match to name a few highlights. Our term was then wrapped by a meaningful accelerated graduation celebration for our two matric girls.
We need to wish a special thank you to our dedicated teaching faculty for all that they have done to breathe life into the school in their own unique ways. From baking for Shabbatons to leading Conscious Education professional development, it is a privilege to work alongside such engaged and committed educators.
Next term we have a great deal to look forward to. We wish our CTTH family a safe and rested winter break. May you return to school refreshed and ready for all that we have in store.
